Brumbies confident of first-up Super upset

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 23/02/2017 Matt Coughlan

While the Brumbies head to Christchurch for their round one clash with the Crusaders as underdogs, the new-look side is confident of starting their Super Rugby season with an upset.

The Crusaders are favoured to win just their second season-opener since 2010 with the Brumbies squad losing more than 700 games of experience at the end of last season.

Flanker Chris Alcock, who is one of four players set to be handed their first Brumbies start, says after a pre-season of working on new combinations, the side is focused on Saturday night's match.
